Display Categories and SubCategories in Magento

12 Dec

For listing all top level category and their subcategory try this code:

<?php
/*
 * https://jpsolution.wordpress.com – Magento Tutorials
 *
 * Display top level categories and
 * subcategories of the current category
 *
**/
?>

The majority of Magento websites out there list their top level categories as well as the current categories sub-categories. This feature is commonly requested on forums so I decided to write a small post about it.

Rather than just write out the code, I will show you a few variations so that you can get the right one for you.

All of the following code samples can be copy and pasted into ANY template file and will function correctly.

Display Top Level Categories Only

?>
<?php $_helper = Mage::helper('catalog/category') ?>
<?php $_categories = $_helper->getStoreCategories() ?>
<?php if (count($_categories) > 0): ?>
    <ul>
        <?php foreach($_categories as $_category): ?>
            <li>
                <a href="<?php echo $_helper->getCategoryUrl($_category) ?>">
                    <?php echo $_category->getName() ?>
                </a>
            </li>
        <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
<?php endif; ?>

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog visitors have complained about my
    site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
